A good movie

Honestly, I was very young when I watched this flick but back then, I thought it was pretty good. Maybe I should re-watch it to make up my mind for good. Anyway, it is basically a solid biography, even though Iโ€™m not an expert on Tina Turnerโ€™s life. I mean, this woman is definitely an icon and she definitely deserved such a movie to tell her story. Of course, the biggest asset in this flick wa... read more

r04n1ez's 2020 movie diary (70 movies items)

"Watched: January 10, 2020. Director: Brian Gibson Starring: Angela Bassett as Tina Turner Laurence Fishburne as Ike Turner I loved this film! I thought it was a very touching film, as it is a biopic inspired by Tina Turner's life story. The performances were top-notch. Bassett became Tuner. Same for Fishburne who was execrable as Ike Turner. Being a fan of Tina Turner and her music, I really loved this film. My rating: 8/10"
